All maps "lie". Each map is created with a specific intention; therefore, they are not actual representations of the world but more or less accurate approximations of the real world. In mapping the wo... rld, you can choose from dozens of map projections that attempt to bring the plane the terrestial "sphere". Each projection introduces certain distortions that will form a different world view. What if we met several of these projections in the same poster? That's what I set out with this little visual experiment, based on various map projections available in my Maptorian digital mapping project. The result is unclear but, at the same time striking. No projection is better than another; simply all have their uses and are equally valid as idealized representations of our planet.
